Is it possible to hide links from google?

I came across a site that has posted my link, but when I check the 'Google cache' of the page, the link is not there. All other content of the page is cached except for the link. The html code of the page looks clean.

(The link was posted 5 months before, and the page was cached recently, so obviously it should have been cached)

So my questions is; is it possible to hide certain sections of the site using CSS or any other method?

I checked the code and there is no javascript around the links. But the link is in a separate 'Div'.

The link may be in their CSS navigation, or something similar. You have to trigger the link to show with an action, usually hovering or clicking on a "show more" type link.
